This elegant family home is situated in the popular, picturesque hamlet of Ovingdean, nestled between vibrant Kemp Town and the historic fishing village of Rottingdean. Offering very generous accommodation, this stunning property has been refurbished and extended by the current owners to provide a well-considered layout and stylish finish.
The front has off-street parking and an enclosed front garden which has been landscaped and planted to provide privacy to the house whilst maintaining the views. The garden faces south east and includes a large wraparound decking area with a further lawn. There is also a private patio space to the rear of the property. The owners have recently constructed a Shepherd's Hut in the garden, which has bathroom facilities and can be used as a home office or guest accommodation.
The hallway has handmade fitted cupboards and gives way to the snug/living room with a wood burning stove and bay window, and the stunning open plan kitchen/diner/living space. The handmade kitchen has an oak island and work surfaces, a large larder and utility room with access to the rear patio.
The dining area has ample room for a large family table that can easily seat ten people and is set alongside a dual-fuel stove. The entire space makes the most of the southerly views and light, with bi-fold doors opening out onto the deck to both the front and side. At the back of the ground floor there is a large second sitting room or playroom.
The stairs rise from the central hallway to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms. Bedroom three is at the rear, with the remaining three bedrooms offering superb sea and downland views to the front. The owners have also recently secured planning permission to add a fifth bedroom with en-suite at the rear of the house above the kitchen. There is a family bathroom with natural stone floor and an en-suite shower to bedroom two.
The bath is in an ideal position for enjoying the southerly views placed under the window which is dressed with plantation shutters. Bedroom one is large with dual aspect windows and an enviable walk-through dressing room that opens on to an en-suite bathroom with twin sinks, bath and double walk-in shower. There is a large loft space offering ample storage with easy access from the large landing.
Rottingdean village is just a short distance away and the regular reliable bus service nearby offers swift access into the city of Brighton and Hove. The nearby downland walks are simply beautiful on the Sussex Downs area of outstanding natural beauty and of course the wonderful coastline is within a bike ride or walk away with the chalk cliff's Ovingdean café and the under-cliff walk into Brighton Marina village.
